I have been listening to books on tape lately while I spin yarn instead of my usual NPR or TV choices. I read the first Dune again the other day, so I have been listening to the second (Dune Messiah ) on my computer. My library is awesome since they have a ton of books both audio and pdf that you can check out right online.
The Maltese Falcon has been my other favorite book on tape lately. It is perfectly suited to listening to, and the audio was much better done than many books on tape. Not really kid appropriate, as it is a dark noir mysetery. But really good! I'll have to watch the movie next, as I hear the adaption of the book is more true to book than most book-to-tv movies are.
